Virtual facilitation has been on the rise over the last decade—two thirds of organizations, and growing regularly, leverage this modality, according to ATD Research. In today’s remote work environment, virtual facilitation is a core competency for trainers and educators. No matter how skilled you are as an in-person classroom trainer, success in the virtual environment requires unique skills in audience engagement, creating non-traditional interactivity, sensitivity in how to use your voice, and confidence to multitask in a new technical and logistical setting.
This course offers training in the live online classroom so you can experience techniques being role modelled. Using the techniques modelled, you and peer from your cohort will also receive a piece of content to deliver virtually. At the conclusion of this online facilitation training, you will have developed the skills and confidence to successfully facilitate synchronous learning events.
